General Haulage

Express Delivery - Groupage - Crane Vehicles - Freight Forwarding - Warehousing & Storage

We're well known for our Heavy Transport operations but our General Haulage roots are still firmly in the ground. We've been providing Transport solutions since 1928, and as a sustainable family run business we pride ourselves on being able to offer a knowledgeable, friendly and efficient service throughout the UK, Ireland and Europe.

Our dedicated fleet of General Haulage vehicles frequently carry out daily, weekly and monthly contracts across the UK and Europe as well as one off distribution services and Express Deliveries.  Stationed across our Halifax, Goole and Grangemouth Depots, our General Haulage fleet includes Rigid Flat Bed vehicles from 22-28', Rigid 22' Curtain Sided vehicles with tail lift, 45' Flats including 'Twist Lock' and 'Goal Post' trailers and 45' Curtain Siders including retracting roof Euro Liners. 

For smaller loads our 1.5Te capacity Sprinter Van offers the perfect solution, whilst for more difficult loads we're ideally equipped to provide flexible loading and delivery solutions utilising our range of Crane Mounted Vehicles & Lorry Loaders.  With front and rear mounted Rigid and Artic vehicles offering lifting capacities ranging from 9 Tonne/Metre to 205 Tonne/Metre (the largest in the UK), operated by our ALLMI (Association of Lorry Loader Manufacturers and Importers) Certified Drivers, we can quickly and efficiently undertake lifting and positioning tasks without the need for hiring mobile cranes. 

All our vehicles are equipped with satellite tracking systems and digital communications providing our Traffic Office and our customers with real-time and historical travel information.  This tracking ensures that we can follow the entire journey of your cargo from collection to delivery providing up to date progress information and an accurate time of arrival. 

The expertise, experience and equipment across Collett's General Haulage operations allows us to provide a complete Transport solution offering a 24/7 operation, dedicated and timed deliveries, including UK Express Delivery as well as Groupage facilities for full or part loads, UKWarehousing & Storage, stock control and order picking.
